Are you considering starting a business in the Torsby district or do you already own a company here? The business development service of the municipality can help you develop your plans and make your business more profitable.
The business development service of the municipality is TUAB, or Torsby Utveckling AB ("Torsby Development Ltd"). TUAB has been in operation since 1998 and is co-owned by Torsby Municipality and two local business associations.
The Torsby development service offers free advice, information and support to all new and existing small businesses in the district. When you contact TUAB, you can expect to receive answers to questions about your business plan, the financing or establishment of your business, licenses, recruitment, project support opportunities, competence development and much more.
Apart from support to individual companies, TUAB arranges business meetings and education activities according to the needs of the local companies, and conducts projects to meet these needs.
Starting a business – information for immigrants
Are you considering starting a company or selling your services in Sweden? Foreign citizens wishing to start their own company in Sweden are subject to different rules depending on whether they are citizens of a Nordic country, citizens of another EU/EEA country or citizens of a non-EU/EEA country.
As an EU citizen, you have the same rights and obligations as a Swedish entrepreneur. The freedom of establishment and the freedom to provide services are two fundamental freedoms central to the EU internal market. This means that, as an EU citizen, you may operate a business in Sweden and have the same rights and obligations as Swedish entrepreneurs. For example, you are required to register your company, apply for F-tax and VAT and a permit if your business activities require one.
If you are moving to Sweden and want to start your own business in the Torsby district, the first step for you is to contact Ronny Larsson, the municipal immigrant coordinator. The second step is to contact our business advisors at TUAB, who can help you to start up your business.
Olof Ljungberg is the municipal business strategist. He functions as a resource on issues concerning investment, business establishment and applications for grands and funds for businesses, regionally and nationally. He will guide companies through the municipal organisation and act as a coordinator when there are several municipal departments involved in an assignment.
Olof Ljungberg is also the person to contact if you are looking for available office space or a site for your company or industry. Torsby Municipality counts several business parks, such as Inova Park, Gräsmarksvägen and Bergebyvägen. It is also possible to rent office space directly from the municipality under favourable conditions.
